"My great-great-great-great grandfather, John Gregory, was a native of Ireland.When he came to America I do not know.
My great-great-great grandfather, John Gregory, was born in Virginia.He married Sally Tuker by whom he had seven sons and three daughters.He died about the year 1800 and his wife two years later.Both are buried four or five miles south of Nelson Court House, Virginia.
My great-great grandfather, John Gregory, was born in 1771.Between the years 1790 and 1794 he was in the Army under the command of General Wayne.After the close of the Northwestern Campaign he returned and about 1798 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Major Henry Turner of Amhurst County, by whom he had five children.His wife died in 1809 and he in 1812, from exposure in the War of 1812.They are both buried two miles above Green Garden, Sumner County, Tennessee.
Their son, George N. Gregory, was my great grandfather.He was born in Amhurst County, Virginia, in 1801 and died April 1, 1853.He maried the first time Mary Ann Earl of Alexandria County.Their son, George Tyler Gregory, was my grandfather.He married Emily Mullen in the Methodist Church of Hertford, North Carolina about 1860.
This is the Mullen line.Henry Pointer received a land grant of 1500 acres in Pottsworth Parish, Glouster County, Virginia.Henry Pointer in 1783 married Grizzelle Jones, daughter of William Jones of Perquimans County, NC.To them was born in 1790 a daughter, Jane Pointer, who married as her second husband John Clary.To them was born in 1819 a daughter, Susan Williams Clary.In 1835 she married James Whedbee Mullen and one of their daughters was Emily Mullen, who married George Tyler Gregory.
